Happy Mothers Day to my mommy dearest.Masal Vadai with rasam is my moms fav combination.I have hardly seen my mom come down with fever,those rare days she would feel feverish she would make this combination of rasam and vadai.I don't know if it is psychological or its the hot piping rasam that did the magic the fever always vanished.Everytime we talk about that it always brings smiles and laughter on our faces.One of those good times we share as mother,daughter- as friends...Happy Mothers Day!!
